    I went to one of our LGS this afternoon looking for either a nice used DE.44MAG or a nice used or new 1911. No luck on a nice used DE .44MAG, but I did manage to buy a new 1911. I picked up one of the new Remington 1911-R1 ENHANCED models (that makes it 81 now). I got it for $886 OTD. That was a good deal in my opinion. It is a really nice pistol. The trigger pull is light a crisp at about 3.5lbs. The grips are nice, as is the extended slide safety.

    Is the Enhanced model different from the Talo model?

    Yes it is. The TALO version is a base model 1911-R1 with nice Rosewood grips with the medallion in them.

    You still have a few hours to change your mind and get #82. Congrats on a nice pistola. Saw one at buds a couple of days ago. Like that better than the R-1.
